Please find below guidance, which has been provided by Solihull MBC, on how to have a safe Halloween this year for cascading through your networks.
Enjoy Halloween safely this year
Halloween is a time when people often gather together and this poses a risk for COVID-19 transmission.
The current lockdown restrictions in Solihull prevent gatherings of more than 6 taking place in private gardens outside, with no one
is permitted to come inside your home unless they have a valid exemption.
Below are ideas and guidance to help you plan a safe Halloween this year:
Make sure you help to reduce the spread of the virus by avoiding:
Knocking on doors – this increases transmission potential and would expose our many as residents who are vulnerable and should be protected, as well as those who are isolating.
Traditional trick or treating – where treats are handed to children who go door to door or children take sweets from a shared bucket.
Organising or attending crowded costume parties held indoors, outdoors or at your own home.
Instead of the traditional door to door trick or treating where the virus can be spread by touch, why not try:
· Carve or decorate pumpkins and display in your household
· Organise a Halloween treasure hunt at home
· Host a virtual party with themed games and music
· Watch a scary movie with the familyincluding spooky treats
· Have a virtual Halloween costume contest
By following this guidance you can enjoy a safe and fun Halloween, whilst also protecting your neighbours, friends and family!
